We know that most of you smartphone users tend to access Facebook over our mobiles than using your PCs. But just because there’s so much of Facebook usage coming from the mobiles, would you consider picking up the new HTC First Facebook phone over the more popular smartphones that would be out soon, like the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the upcoming Apple iPhone 5S?
HTC First: To start with, we must tell you that this phone’s nowhere near the Galaxy S4 in terms of processing power and is more of a mid-range offering. Running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a Facebook Home overlay, the HTC First sports a 4.3-inch display with a resolution of 1280X720 pixels. The phone is powered by a dual-core 1.4 GHz Snapdragon processor and 1 GB of RAM, and has an internal storage of 16 GB. There’s no provision for expanding the storage space using microSD cards, however. And there’s a 2000 mAh battery, which should give the phone a long life on each charge for sure. Another major drawback is the 5 MP rear camera, which is far from satisfactory, while the front-facing camera has a decent resolution of 1.6 MP.
Samsung Galaxy S4: When the world’s most popular smartphone maker brings out its flagship device, the whole world takes notice. That’s what happened with the Galaxy S4, which garnered a lot of attention in the media much ahead of its release. The successor to the popular Galaxy S3 sports a 5-inch full HD display and comes in two versions – one that’s powered by a quad-core 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor and the other with a Samsung Exynos 5 octo-core processor. Both these versions have 2 GB of RAM. There’s a 13 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera with many advanced camera features. There’s also quite a few interesting features added into the phone, like the eye tracking and floating touch capabilities. A 2600 mAh battery keeps the phone powered for quite some time.
Apple iPhone 5S: Apple’s upcoming device to take on the Galaxy S4 has also got a lot of rumors surrounding it. We can expect it to sport a larger screen than the 4-inch offering in the iPhone 5. And of course, it will be more powerful – rumors suggest that Apple could put in an A6X or an A7 processor in this new iPhone. There could be an iSight camera, a 13 MP rear camera and Smart Flash to reproduce color better in low light conditions. But for more details, guess we’ll just have to wait for Apple to announce the iPhone 5S.
